After several decades of neglect, Martin Luther King Drive was restored to its rightful place as one of the great historic boulevards of Chicago. An interdisciplinary design team of architects, landscape architects, and engineers worked with the City's Public Art Commission to revitalize an eleven block section of the drive. Hoerr Schaudt worked closely with the city and the community to transform the area into a series of inviting public spaces. Extensive allees of trees, lush seasonal plantings, and unique paving designs anchor artist-designed seating and substantial public monuments. An emphasis on human scale has made Martin Luther King Drive a showplace once again.
